Were your meds: Prescribed to be taken this way? Were you prescribed the citalopram and Effexor (venlafaxine) at the same time? The reason i ask is that there would be overlap in terms of serotonin impact with these two medications. Please ask your prescribing medical provider about this. Take care.
